Mr. Derek Meier
“Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.”
and John 20:31, “ But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
Mr. Meier also has a favorite poem, “If”, by Rudyard Kipling
In his leisure time, Mr. Meier enjoys football, basketball, chess and most of all time spent with family.
